From real life to reel life!

Audiences awaiting the release of Airlift, starring Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur, on 22nd January, have been able to whet their appetites with the official trailer – which clocked up three million views in its first 24 hours online.

Airlift could be starting a trend: later this year, the real lives of public figures such as Indian Cricket Captain Mahendra S Dhoni, former cricketer Mohammad Azhrauddin and the late heroic flight attendant Neerja Bhanot will be depicted in reel-life.

Airlift itself is an edge-of the seat thriller based on true events during the 1990 Gulf War which saw the world’s largest civilian evacuation in history – over 170,000 Indians were airlifted using 488 flights in just 59 days. The film focuses on the heroic story of the Kuwait-based Indian businessperson Ranjit Katyal, who masterminded the rescue operation – played by Akshay Kumar, who unveiled the official trailer on Twitter.
